they sell stuff for closets in corners. only.


Here's Drew pointing out what he found in Buellton, CA. I'll just tell you what he wrote to me about it:
Something about the way a replacement sign had been tacked onto the previous sign struck us a strange, and the needless quotation marks around the store name made us think it was either some kind of secret brothel or cult meeting place. In the end, we didn't go in. We did not regret the choice. Our experience with the "Corner Closet" was entirely indicative of everything else we encountered in Buellton.

wow. reading through all of these entries, i am confounded by the inappropriate over-usages of comic sans and the over-use of "tic marks" which are NOT the same as “quote marks.”

I "love" your blog. "seriously."

They want you to know it's a store and not actually a closet. Either that or someone said "wow, this is like my corner closet" and they ran with it.

PS supermax, LOVE the avatar!

I just came across your blog. I'm glad to see I'm not the only one who goes crazy over stuff like this. Several years ago I saw a sign reading:

"RE-grand-opening"

What the heck?

Thank you, anonymous! I'm never cuter than when I'm confounded by needless punctuation.

The sign is actually in Solvang, CA. I used to buy clothes there as a kid.
